Any classical scholars out there..?
I find in my Baby Logic lecture notes the allegation that Evert Beth said
that Aristotle's great insight was that reasoning from premisses *assumed*
to be true was the same as reasoning from premisses *known* to be true.
Was Aristotle the first person to spot this? And where in Beth could I
have read this?
